quality.You can share these pictures with your relatives and friends by
uploading them to a _Web site_ or by using _e-mail_ programs.

parties in a digital format.You can transfer the recorded videos to a
computer and then share them with your friends by copying the videos to a
recordable CD or _digital versatile disc_ (DVD). You can then view these
videos by using a CD or a _DVD player_. You can also upload small video
clips to a Web site or send them to your friends or relatives by using
e-mail programs.A _digital video_ is easier to edit when compared with
traditional video. You edit a digital video by using _digital video editing
software_. For example, you can rearrange or remove scenes and add special

have to travel to different places to attend business meetings and
conferences. You can connect your computer to the Internet and conduct or
attend live meetings and conferences from any location by using

camera, and an Internet or any other, private, _intranet_, global _wide
area network_ (WAN), connection to transmit audio and video. As a result,
you can see and listen to people who are participating in the
